There are obviously so many great live shows, but I personally feel like Live/Dead kind of best represents their late 60's sound, and Europe '72 (once I went and got the original tracks for about of it, those which were sped up so much on the offical release they sound like Alvin and the Chipmunks play the Dead) is just the best you can do to represent the 72-72 era. But I know '77 is thought of as another great year, and all I have so far is a rather underwhelming (In my opinion) show from 4-30 (Download Series, Vol. 1). What would anyone suggest as THE one, single show to have from '77, official release or otherwise? I tend to lean toward the officials only because the sound quality tends to be slightly better than the stuff available on Archive.
